Weekly Update 31st March


Dear Parents/Carers,

As we come to the end of a very busy term,  there are a few items to be aware of and some known dates for next term. As per usual in the final term, there will be additions to this as further events are confirmed.

Family Reading Session and Uniform Swap

The final Family Reading session for P3 takes place today at 12.15pm

Our Uniform Swap will also be set up from 12.15pm in the corridor outside of the gym.

Passion for Portree Summit

I was extremely proud of our Primary 7s who hosted visitors and  delivered their Youth Speaks yesterday to a variety of community organisations at our Passion for Portree Summit.  The event was recorded by Radio Skye and will be broadcast on Monday at 11am.

PPS Cross Country

The school cross country event will take place on Friday 21st April at 11am, with a rain date of Friday 28th April.  The event will take place at the KGV and will be open to all pupils in P4-7 (please note this is a correction to last weeks’ notice that P5-7 were involved).  This will serve as the qualifying event for the Skye Schools Cross Country Championship which is scheduled for 3rd May.
